The National Archives brings web archiving to local authorities (UK)

The UK National Archives is working with local authorities to pilot a web archiving model which will ensure important online information is preserved for future generations. Currently, The National Archives works in partnership with the Internet Memory Foundation (IMF) to archive central government websites but its remit does not extend to cover all the local government or community websites. The pilot will run in seven local authority archives - covering more than 20 local authorities - where staff will be trained in how to develop a curated web archive for their area and will be provided with free support from The National Archives and the IMF for the duration of the pilot
